Did you know that we offer our Astoria, NY, patients a professional teeth whitening system they can use from home? With our custom-made trays and our bleaching gel, you can start 2019 with a brighter smile. Let’s talk about the benefits of teeth whitening.
The Benefits of Professional Cosmetic Systems
When you visit the store, you’ll see plenty of products offering a whiter smile. For example, strips, toothpastes, and rinses all brag about their whitening abilities. While they do help combat teeth stains, they don’t offer the same level of brightening as our professional system. The results also don’t last as long and rarely address advanced cases of discoloration.
The At-Home Whitening System
To help our patients with stained teeth, we may suggest a system to use from the comfort of their own home. At-home whitening involves creating a custom-made tray, one that fits you mouth comfortably. We then prescribe a bleaching gel. Each day, the patient fills the trays with gel and wears them for a set amount of time, usually between 30 and 45 minutes. Over the course of a week to ten days, the gel and trays remove discoloration and could potentially brighten your smile by multiple shades.
Keeping Your Teeth Brighter
Following treatment, you’ll be curious about keeping these new results. First, the trays and remaining gel are yours to keep so you can use them for touch-ups down the road. Other ways to help your results last longer include daily brushing and flossing, cutting back on soda and sugary drinks, and avoiding foods/drinks with dark pigments (such as coffee or tea). You also need to have your teeth cleaned every six months which removes plaque from the surface of the teeth. If you have any questions about our cosmetic systems, then contact our team today. Let’s resolve to enjoy a brighter smile in 2019!
